Welcome to Librarium Online!
According to page 15 of Junes WD it is possible to download both the Deamon and Witch hunter codex's from the GW site. The information is:
"Go and register on the Games Workshop website to access the archive of PDF articles, including two massive downloads in the form of Codex: Deamonhunters and Codex: Witch hunters. The downloads contain full rules for using the Deamonhunters and Witch Hunters armies in your games of Warhammer 40,000. Registration is quick easy and entirely free."
I do not know when they will be available i haven't looked yet and also dont know if the actual downloads will be free but i believe they will.
Happy days for the inquisition.

That's not meant to be against you, but how is that a happy day?
The codex is the old one, I and most DH/WH player do already have that one, and it not really competitive anymore GK at least SoB can be.
Why not change it slightly like the old BA dex so it's up to 5th? The pdf fixes absolutely nothing and is in my eyes complete crap.
Of course it comes them cheaper to not reprint the dexes, since not many will buy them atm, and the ones who are interested can now Download them.
Only thing that will change is that more people will use the Inq / Mystics as allies imo.
Sorry for the rant, and again, nothing against you, just still annoyed by those news...
Ok. You best look at that again and study the language very carefully. If the information you received just says you can download those codices then that's not panic alert. If it says that you can download the UPDATED version then we're in trouble.
If I had to take a guess I would say that they are simply covering the people that want to start collecting now with the new book coming and still give them the option of playing them now because the books aren't available.
At least I'm sure that's all it is. We wouldn't have a decent build up of rumours otherwise.

I did not write anything different..
So while I do agree with what you said, is still think it is rather pointless.
I think it's just that every DH/WH player should by now have a codex, there not really new. !
I just don't get their release strategy in making the "effort" to upload the codices and then release a new book.
But maybe I'm way off?!
That could be the point, even though they pulled the regular GKs (5man Squad).
Well on one side I'm happy, that way I can continue playing my Exorcist list (GK & SM).
Off topic: It would be really wise to release the GKs, and give them a model for the Stormraven.
When I meant GKs with Stormraven I meant more that they should release new models for them in plastic (conversions here I come) and the Stormraven, since they surely would sell really well.
I would like them being playable as pure GK. But take them a bit further away from "regular" SMs...
